Be careful with these. They sometimes have an on screen display that can't be turned off because it's cheap.

Your best solution is an Intensity Pro (non-4K).

Also, just because a computer has HDMI, doesn't mean it's an input.

it's a laptop with win 10 I wish I had a desktop but these laptops today come with nothing on them no CD / FireWire so you can't download from my Sony TRV 950

Unless the TRV has an HDMI OUTPUT, this wouldn't work.... it's been a while since I've dealt with tape (got some tapes I've been meaning to dump myself....), I understand the challenge. I haven't been able to find any firewire drivers for Win10 for the computers I have that have the option...

Actually, I'm at the point of taking some time to do a "tape dump" on a laptop that still has Win 7 and firewire on it! It'll be a hassle, but keeps the files in a digital format at least, so shouldn't lose quality (any adapter "solution" runs a risk of image degradation).
